Scotty McCreery charts his fourth consecutive Number One hit this week with “You Time,” the lead single from his new album, Same Truck. He co-wrote the song about his wife, Gabi, prior to the pandemic.
Scotty said, “This song, like so many of my songs, was inspired by my wife Gabi as well as my desire to spend more time with her in the midst of our busy careers. Thanks to country radio . . . and as always, to my fans. I have missed you during this past year while the world did stop spinning, and I’m glad to be back out on the road to see you.”
He wrote "You Time" in 2019 when he was busying touring on the heels of the success of his first Number One hit, while Gabi was working as a pediatric nurse at Duke Hospital. Scotty tells us: ["(I) wrote the song just wanting everything to slow down and wanting me and her to have more time together, and I got what I asked for. It's definitely one of those be careful what you wish for kind of things but again talking about a silver lining through the craziness of the last year or so was that time we got to spend together, that 'you time' that we got, especially so young in our marriage. We didn't think we'd ever get this until we're old and retired with my work schedule and everything."] SOUNDCUE (:25 OC: . . . schedule and everything.)
“You Time” follows Scotty’s three back-to-back chart-topping hits from his Seasons Change album, “Five More Minutes,” “This is It,” and “In Between.”
Scotty's next single from the album is called “Damn Strait.”
